Rebel One Studios joins START-UP NY



BUFFALO, NEW YORK – November 1, 2016 - Rebel One Studios, an early stage animation production company, is proud to announce their acceptance into the START-UP NY program in partnership with the University at Buffalo. Already providing area businesses with sophisticated 3D and 2D animations, visualizations and motion graphics - the STARTUP-NY program will aid the company in expanding their team and elevating their services.

START-UP NY (SUNY Tax-free Areas to Revitalize and Transform Upstate New York) offers new and expanding businesses the opportunity to operate tax-free for ten years on or near eligible university or college campuses in New York State. Rebel One Studios is committed to making the most of this incentive by creating positions for local creative talent and locating on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.

"Traditionally, animation studios had to locate in very large cities," said Joe Hund, co-founder and Business Development Director at Rebel One Studios. "Buffalo presents a unique opportunity in the form of the University at Buffalo. Two key components of making a service like ours viable are access to processing power and availability of skilled labor. UB's impressive computing capability and robust media program surpass those needs, enabling us to feel confidant entering into and investing in a growing market. We're very excited to partner with a world-class institution and WNY's premier source of innovation."

"The University at Buffalo, in particular the Center for Computational Research, is excited to partner with Rebel One Studios in this innovative economic development program which is showing the nation that New York State is the smart choice for new and exciting companies to grow their businesses,” said Thomas Furlani, PhD, director of UB’s Center for Computational Research. “Rebel One Studios’ focus on creating stand-alone, high-detail animation and demonstration videos make it a natural partner to tap into UB’s expert researchers and cutting-edge facilities while providing opportunities to enterprising students and recent graduates."
